It’s hard to believe that baked gluten-free donuts without any eggs, dairy, soy, or other top allergens could look this amazing. But they do. In fact, this lovely recipe graces the cover of the new So Delicious Dairy Free recipe book, SO Delightful!
The gluten-free donuts themselves are delightfully sweet, but the sugary vanilla glaze ups the indulgence factor while the quadruple dose of coconut (coconut milk beverage, coconut oil, coconut in the batter, and coconut coating) tames the sweetness and turns the flavor profile to “coconut lover’s.” If you aren’t a big coconut fan, you can omit both uses of unsweetened coconut. The coconut milk beverage and coconut oil will virtually disappear into the batter, adding richness without too much coconut influence.
This gluten-free donuts recipe and the photo were created by Ella Leché of Lifeologia, and embraced by So Delicious Dairy Free. I buy a lot of coconut products and flours. See the links in the recipe below for the brands that I recommend for price and quality. For in store purchases, like chilled coconut milk beverage, you can use this So Delicious Coupon
Not Gluten-Free? For those of you who do not have gluten-free needs, you can omit the xanthan gum and use 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour in place of the flours and starches. But keep in mind, results may vary!
